 In lieu of the recent earthquake that devastated Haiti on January 12, 2010, the situation for HIV infected Haitians throughout the country has taken a grave turn. Treatment facilities and medicine have been lost. The Haitian government faces the monumental task of rebuilding the state health care system, while attempting to provide continued treatment to a forgotten segment of the population.

 The time for action is now. Through your dedication & support we affect change to the current conditions in Haiti.  Visit http://www.Conversationswiththeliving.org and donate to our cause. We need your assistance on our mission of educating the world of the prevalence of HIV in Haiti and the challenges faced by medical professionals and HIV afflicted Haitians in regards to treatment and prevention options.

I wrote a few posts on this some time ago, but again the reports of rapes on young females in PAP and outling regions is on the rise. There’s not much one can say to justify or even make sense of such heinous acts. Pleasse refer to the story in the hristian Science Monitor.

Rape Fears in Rebuilding Haiti

I alluded to this in a recent post, but it’s now getting the news coverage it deserves. The number of sexual assaults on females in Port Au Prince and its outlying areas is on the rise. I can’t make any excuse for these actions but to say that human beings in extreme conditions will behave in an extreme fashion.
